When Rheeda Walker finished writing her book, “The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental Health,” (New Harbinger Publications, $16.95), she considered not using “mental health” in the title.

The words often carry a stigma and can inhibit someone from seeking help altogether, she said.

But Walker, a Ph.D. licensed clinical psychologist and an associate professor and director of the Culture, Risk and Resilience Lab, which she established in 2012, at University of Houston, wanted to be clear about her mission: to address the “mental health crisis” in the African American community.
